"When I'm in the middle of writing a track, I don't want to fool with 35 different controls for every frequency. I want to make an adjustment and move on. EQuick is perfect for my workflow: easy to use, stunning good looks, and it does exactly what it says on the tin."

The EQuick story

What EQ do you design after you've designed the ultimate EQ?

EQuality was a runaway success. For its users, it's made EQing and mixing a faster, easier and more enjoyable process.

So, for the next EQ design, we listened to our users, and those for whom something else was needed. EQuick is the result of that process.

We wanted to play with the idea of the interface; we wondered whether EQ could be made more intuitive, more direct, and how one would go about making an EQ that made the process even faster. EQuality speeds up your workflow because it sounds great, and you don't waste any time compensating for defects in what it does. For EQuick we wanted to delve deeper into the design of the interface. Perfection is when there's nothing more to take away, so we started by stripping down the interface to its most essential element - the graph. EQuick has nothing else. We had to work in all the controls (like Range and Shift) that made EQuality so special and we found that we could do that with the graph. Also, we took account of the fact that different people have different size screens - so you can pick your size for EQuick. But we couldn't do that at the expense of control, so we built the tooltip system that provides you will all the data you need, when you need it.

We're proud of EQuick. It's clean, clear, uncluttered and fun! We really hope you'll enjoy our modern vision of EQ for the future.
